City/Town: Waldspielfeld / Rüti
Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: ..Rüti

Alright folks, here it is!!! The official "Shoot your EF Buddies" Event!!!

Ever wanted to take on annoying posters...teach em pain, thank em back for that groan on the fluffy bunny thread..?! Well, here is your chance...we'll meet up, form teams (I'm know that it's most likely going to be all men for themselves, as we don't even seem to be able to answer single queries).

This is the venue:
www.paintball-arena.ch/waldspielfeld-bilten

Now, I'd like to get a definite number of participants for this event by the 19th of June so that I can go ahead and book.

Disclaimer: This is not "Curry Night". I will not and don't expect anybody else to fork out money for no-shows and therefore, you'll be held accountable for signing up without coming to the event. I believe we're all mature enough to handle such task.
RSVP'd Yes: 10 (6 members and 4 guests)
  • simon_ch - this will be fun!
  • Jo-Jo + 1 guest - Let me know if anyone needs a ride!
  • jsherk + 1 guest - Just need to know location will allow for me to be back to my dog within 7/8 hours via car. If so, I am in.

  • Papa Goose + 1 guest - France is off.... yeeeah, but only until the end of July:-((, pity there is no grynch to take a bead on though.

What time does the paintball start and finish? The train from Rüti GL to Lugano takes 4½ hours (With 2 changes)
No idea...but honestly..I'm thinking of moving the event to a more central location...this whole country side venue is way past my geographical comfort zone.

I'd LOVE to do this, but have a visitor arriving that day and I doubt we'll be able to get down there in time (think she might have needed a little persuading, but it was doable!)

Guys we've had that already, either it's a hot sweaty barn with close-up combat (that sounds quite sexy actually now I mention it) or it's a big forest a bit more outside of town.. Forest is much more fun, it takes 1h 12m by car, surely if we get enough people to join there are some people with a car?

LiB... Anything within an hour from Basel I will drive to... 2 hours of drive back after paintball would be eerrrrr... painful.

Sir, I slap you with a virtual glove. The day will come when I must restore Mr Jippy's honor.

You know what I think?! I think that Mr. Jippy is a blatant metrosexual, with gel hair, a pink shirt, waxed eyebrows and a cat as a friend...now what?! You know where I'll be at on the 9th.
..yeah, that's right. Walk away.

Well, I figured that Ruti is not really adequate as it's way out in the boonies and thus, we'd settle for a location closer to our geographical comfort zone. Will post the link in due time.

Cool, also not to many confirmed so a smaller venue rather than a bloody great wood might be better... just sayin'

If the location allows for me to get back to the dog within 7 hours, count me in + 1.

Economisto, you have a place in my car.

Re: Paintball (or the shoot your EF buddies) Event

So, this place is approx 1hr 15min from Zurich, Oerlikon. Not 100% sure is my friend will make it as he is still nursing a sprained ankle. I have room for 3 in the back seat if people want and possibly a 4th spot if my buddy Sally's out. So I can take Economisto, UTH and LIB or Simon. Can anyone else drive?

It would be easier for me to pick people up at the Oerlikon Banhoff which is one stop past Hardbrucke coming from the Zuri HB.

Let me know if this is still on in light of last Friday's tragedy.
